What Goes Around . . .

The Republican minority in the Senate has allowed nine nominees to the Appeal Courts to go through, but just put a monkey wrench in the planned promotion of one judge for the 9th Circuit. Democrats are of course, appalled that the minority would restrict the nomination of a President. After all, elections have consequences don't they?
Why yes they do, and as I noted six years ago, it was a good thing that the Republicans didn't implement the so called "nuclear option." Now that the shoe is on the other foot, you have to wonder if Reid wants the nuclear option. Of course, intellectual consistency is not one of his high points. Heck, intellectual anything cannot be used to describe Harry. I am just waiting for the moment to return and bite him in the butt for this comment from the Examiner:
There was a revealing moment in 2005, as the filibuster fight was nearing its climax, when mild-mannered Republican Sen. Robert Bennett asked Sen. Harry Reid, who was then the minority leader, "if any number of hours of debate would be sufficient" to move the Owen nomination forward. Reid's answer was quick and sharp. "There is not a number in the universe that would be sufficient," he said.
How is it that we can elect such stupid people?
Nevada - You got a lot of explaining to do.
